WATCH: “WORLD WEIRDEST NEWS ON HOW A LARVA WAS REMOVED FROM A GIRL’S SCALP”

We must always prepare to widen our knowledge into the happenings in the world that could increase our understanding on many things. Science has discovered many weird things but these can be a great help to all! Watch this world weirdest news on how a larva was removed from a girl’s scalp.

 (If you’re afraid of larva and other same kinds of insects, better not watch the video.)

This video was uploaded on YouTube by NatGeoWild Channel with this caption, “Meet a pest that can really get under your skin... or in your head. The parasitic botfly lays its eggs in "vector hosts' — including humans! Removing the hungry larva can be awkward, painful, and downright disturbing.” But what is this ‘botfly’ all about?

Based on some reliable research, a botfly is any fly in the family Oestridae. Their lifecycles vary greatly according to species, but the larvae of all species are internal parasites of mammals. Largely according to species, they also are known variously as warble flies, heel flies, and gadflies. The larvae of some species grow in the flesh of their hosts, while others grow within the hosts' alimentary tracts.


It is also stated in the said research that botflies deposit eggs on a host, or sometimes use an intermediate vector such as the common housefly, mosquitoes, and even a species of tick (Dermatobia hominis). 
The smaller fly is firmly held by the botfly female and rotated to a position where the botfly attaches some 30 eggs to the body under the wings. 
Larvae from these eggs, stimulated by the warmth and proximity of a large mammal host, drop onto its skin and burrow underneath. Intermediate vectors are often used since a number of animal hosts recognize the approach of a botfly and flee.

This video has a total goose bumps but is a also a wonderful science video!

    I was never welcomed in my Husband’s Family, I was hated by all his siblings especially his Mom, she never want seeing me around her or attending the same occasion. My Husband changed and drove me out of the house just few weeks after he visited his Mom, His mother brainwashed him and took him to evil gathering where there deceived him to join them and abandon me because my spirit will never welcome their union and I might cause heavy harm to their gathering. He accepted their request because of his mother’s influence and decided to send me away, froze my account and restricted me from seeing our kids. I took this case to so many spiritual leaders but none can bring the solutions I needed. I went online after 4 wasted months to seek for any help. I was lucky to find testimonies and recommendations about Dr. Wakina and others, but I chose Dr. Wakina because the testimonies said about him looks legit and are related to my case.

    Story short; Doctor casted the peaceful love spell on me, my husband and his family to reunite us within 7days. He said that the spell will serve as a protection to us and we will live as a happy family for the first time. Well; I was afraid because I don’t know what will be the outcome but I kept my hope and faith strong and also prayed hard for this. His spell finally worked at the date he prophesied. My husband and his family including his Mom located me, kneeling and confessing for the evil done to us and the family even when we missed our baby. I cried and accepted their apology; I knew that there didn’t do it on purpose. We are all happy as a family today and we all called and thank Dr. Wakina for the total freedom he gave to us. I regretted why I wasted time contacting local spiritual doctors when my Husband left. Thank you Dr. Wakina for making me to testify like others and I will keep spreading this great news for ages. Here is Dr. Wakina’s Email: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
